Swastika vandal caught on tape

A University of Mississippi student was referred to the Office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct in connection with images of swastikas being found in the Residential College South elevator last week.

The university did not release the name of the student nor say if the student could be charged with a crime.

The incident is not the first time students at the university used symbols to invoke fear or intimidation to a particular group of people.

In February 2014, two students were charged with placing a noose and a Confederate flag on a statue of James Meredith, the first black student to be enrolled in Ole Miss. One was sentenced in federal court to six months in prison while the other was placed on probation.
